The Women's Affairs Agency attached to the department looking after the Masjid-e-Nabvi has been busy with preparations to develop a Ramadan management performance system for the year 1444 AH.

The aim of these preparations is to improve the quality of services provided to woman pilgrims at Masjid-e-Nabvi.

The Assistant Undersecretary for Women's Service and Field Affairs explained the conditions, controls and procedures of women providing Iftar services.

During the upcoming Ramazan, the number of Iftar food packets for fasting women is expected to reach around 1,285,000.

A total of 524 women will provide fasting services in Masjid-e-Nabvi while ration companies and 821 volunteers will join in. A total of 22 women has been appointed as supervisors.

In mid-October, the Saudi Hajj and Umrah Minister Dr Tawfiq Al-Rabiah announced that women no longer needed a male guardian, or mahram, to visit the Kingdom to perform Hajj or Umrah.

Under the new rules, visas have been extended to three months and pilgrims can travel to other areas of the Kingdom.
